SOURCE: SanDisk Sansa e 250 MP3 Installation Problem

These are the most common methods for recovering Sandisk's Sansa Mp3 Players. I have been almost universally successful in recovering Sansa players using one or a combination of these methods. These methods do not work if you are having synchronization or music format issues - they are for recovering a player that will not power up, freezes, flashes, is not recognized by the computer, and a host of other issues.

Reset the Sansa Player first. On most models, restart is done by holding the power button in for 15 seconds or longer. Check your specific manual to be sure. The manuals are available from the Sansa website if they have been misplaced.
Download the Sansa Recovery Tool from the Sansa website.
Format - Erases Everything: Connect your Sansa player to the computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "Sansa 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.
Firmware Upgrade- Erases Everything: Get the latest firmware upgrade from Sansa - it updates the firmware and erases every song in the player all at once. Note: this method doesn't work if already have the latest firmware. Go to this website and click "Firmware Updater" to find out: http://www.sandisk.com/DriverDownload/driverList.asp
If these fail, then:
Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.
If you get the problem where MTP Device keeps popping up continuously, uninstall the “MTP Device” by going to Start à Control Panel àSystem à Hardware à Device Manager (you computer may vary slightly, depending on Windows Version).
You may have to restart your computer after each of these methods to get them to work properly. Disconnect your Sansa player BEFORE shutting down your computer.

SOURCE: Sansa Express mp3 locked. How to unlock n access the mp3 player?

The lock symbol means that the hold is on. Next to the power button is the hold switch. Make sure the switch is away from the power button so that the red is not showing. If the hold is off and it is still showing the hold symbol, then the hold button may be messed up and may need replacing. But first, do this to check that it isn't just malfunctioning: First, try a soft reset. Do this by pressing the center button and the up volume button simultaneously and try turning it on. If that does not work for you, you will need to get a micro sd card (it can be a dummy) and insert it into the slot on the side of the mp3 player. If you do not have one, you can use one of the round edges of a paper clip (be careful) to get it to come on. When you put either in, it should come on automatically, but if not, just press the power button. This should work.

I'm released from fed prison and need my mp3 player unlock where do I send it to do so or is there a way I can do it myself


Hello, Tara -

I found some information about the Federal prison MP3 players on the Zoukis Prisoner Resources web site (one of the suppliers of services and products to Federal prisons) here:
https://www.prisonerresource.com/prison-survival-guide/things-to-do-in-prison/mp3-players/

At the end of the information on that web page, it states:
(Quote)
When you leave prison you can take your MP3 Player with you, but you will have to mail it to the Advanced Technologies Group, and pay a $15 fee, for them to remove the 14-day revalidation security feature.
(End quote)

However, the article does not provide the address for Advanced Technologies Group to which you can send your MP3 player.

I did find the Advanced Technologies Group (Keefe Group) website however. I know Keefe supplies many products and services to prisons because I know some Keefe Group employees.

This is the link to the Advanced Technologies Group / Keefe Group Contact Us web page. The phone number for Advanced Technologies Group is in Des Moines, Iowa. Call that number and ask to find out about sending your MP3 player to them, with a check or other payment information.

Best wishes.

I have an mp3 player that I purchased while locked up in a Federal prison, I am now at home and want to find out how to remove the security device.


Can you force it to do a "factory reset" ?
This would reset it to a state BEFORE the prison's I.T. team installed any software.
